Well worth $50 per person. We had snorkeled here ten years ago and almost skipped it this time around. But more fish have moved into this marine reserve, as well as huge green turtles, and it was a highlight of our trip. When another couple failed to show up, we ended up with our wonderful private guide Luis. He knew where to find the hidden moray eel and octopus and "caught" a baby nurse shark by hand to let us pet him. That was a first!

Definitely worth a visit! We saw eagle rays, sea turtles, sharks, and dozens of varied reef fish. It was beautiful! The water was warm and the sea was clear :) As it is a preserve, you have the unique opportunity of seeing grouper and snapper that are less spotted in areas that are heavily fished.

Crystal clear water, and a great variety of sea life. It's a pretty accessible and popular spot, so don't expect to have it to yourself. But I was looking straight down most of the time, so the other folks didn't bother me.

We SNUBA'ed and snorkled here. The fish were very comfortable with having people close to them so it was fun to see them up close.

The water was warm and very clear.

Great day, easy 15 minute boat ride from Banyon Bay Villas.
